Starphonic Bubinga

Peter R, 03.12.2011
At first I was a bit surprised, because with the snare the two skins were only somehow and fairly loosely fastened. I tuned them and replaced the included Evans G1 Schlagfell for a Remo CS Fell (I personally just better). I have the snare quite high and am very satisfied with their crisp and bellied sound. You can feel it right when playing.

The carpet reacts indescribably well and the hardware is as pointed out by Tama accustomed.
The Bubinga Snare can be used in any direction. One would only have to exchange the striking of the handle, according to the freedom Lug and Claw Hook holding and tuning system done very quickly.

I can only recommend the Starphonic Bubinga Snare;)

Innovative and practical snare

Heart-Rocker, 02.09.2015
I've been using the snare live for half a year and am very happy with it. There are many small things that inspire me on this drum. First time for processing: The snare is made in Japan and one notices: The beater ridge is clean, the wood a beauty and the boiler absolutely round. The ridge is somewhat rounder compared to the Starclassic Snares. This results in a minimal "duller" and slightly quieter sound, but increases the tuning stability and makes the voice much easier. Thanks to the claws on the tensioning the change of the fur is so very fast. The detachable snare carpet is then added to the resonance skin. Due to the necessary recess in the tensioning strip, you only have to pay attention to how you place the snare on the snarestand. The snare lifting is absolutely silent.
For my purposes (rock, pop), the Remo CS works best in middle-class mood, for more acoustic or jazz things one is better advised with an Ambassador. Evans skins have not convinced me at the snare, since these often sound too dull.
Conclusion: A really practical snare, with many features that you can quickly appreciate. The price can be compared to other products (also by Tama itself) as bargain.
